Wood Thrush was selected as a representative species for the Designing Sustainable Landscapes project of the North Atlantic LCC. The habitat clusters (ecological systems) and associated wildlife species that it represents generally comprise moist hardwood forests. The Landscape Capability (LC) index integrates habitat capability, climate suitability and prevalence into a single index that reflects the relative capacity of a site to support the species (https://scholarworks.umass.edu/designing_sustainable_landscapes/).
